DEADWOOD – The Deadwood City Commission is delaying the enforcement of an ordinance that limits downtown public transportation to the city’s trolley and taxis for six months.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports that the ordinance would prohibit hotel and convention center properties from shuttling visitors to and from their hotels to other locations within the Deadwood city limits.

Deadwood Mayor Francis Toscana says the city will set up a task force to solve the issue.

Local taxi cab owners have questioned the ordinance and want to ensure that the hotel shuttle services are held to the same guidelines and restrictions they’re required to follow.

Deadwood City Commissioner Gary Todd said he’d like to see shuttles limited to those who hold convention center liquor licenses.
